Great level! Great for finding the slope on concrete work as well as stairs. A little pricy for the homeowner but a must have for any contractor.

Cheaply built, calibration is difficult and instructions are vague. Battery life is non existant and beware if youre buyig this in a pinch as it doesnt come with battaries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OutbackJoe One Of The Best Levels Avalable
This may not be what you would find most homeowners using to put up a deck or add a wall but if they had one of these it makes life so much easier. Since this level gives you a tone when level is reached you don't even need to look at it. You can use velcro straps to hold this to any board that needs to be level and when the tone sounds it can be nailed off. This frees both hands and lets you keep your eyes where they need to be. In short this level eliminates a lot of frustration when working alone.
I am older and normally need glasses to read but the large readout (the numerals are 5/8" tall) makes glasses optional. Even in bright sunlight the numerals are very easy to read.
I have used levels like this one to check contractors work after a pour of concrete on sidewalks and sidewalk ramps. Since this level will readout in degrees and slope among others, it makes construction inspection an easy task.
The on off and laser function buttons have a delay built in. This keeps the level and laser from being turned on or off accidentally. A nice feature when wearing gloves.
This is one fine instrument. The build quality is excellent, this level feels as good as it looks and works. The top and bottom have a milled finish that makes it easy to handle in wet weather. Even the bubbles are easy to read.
Really the only thing that its missing is a tapped hole in the bottom of the level to attach it to a tripod when using the laser function. Easy to work around but it would have been nice.
Even the included soft carrying case is nice. It has two handles, one long and one short. There is even a pocket inside to carry batteries and the instructions.
Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a level that would last a lifetime.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Good product if bubble and digital readings don’t conflict
This laser level comes with a nice carrying/storage case. It requires 2 AA batteries (not included). Once the batteries are in and you switch it ON, right away it displays the temperature since the best leveling results can only be achieved within 32-122 degrees F through this unit. An instruction manual is provided with this level but it really does not offer much help for an average DIYer. I believe it assumes that you already know about using digital lasers levels. Its UNITS option provides three modes of readings i.e. %, Degree and inches/foot. When you are trying to achieve level with any of these three 3 modes, the LCD displays pencil shaped icons which can be different in sizes, I had no idea what those icons meant, neither the instructions manual talked about them, So I had to kind of struggle through it to learn what they could mean.
When using it horizontally, the bubble level and digital level give me the same readings but when using it vertically, bubble and digital display never tend to agree. Based on the limited help available through the instructions manual, I am not doing anything wrong. I have tried calibrating twice but again vertical leveling does not give same readings through bubble and digital. Facing the front of the level, the laser light streams out from the right side of the level, this is very helpful when you need to achieve proper grading in large areas or achieve a straight line over a distance. Enabling the Audio option beeps when you reach within 1 degree of level, a very nice feature for professionals.
I would not recommend it for general home use. If you are a professional who does not require any instruction, it’s a good product as long as bubble and digital readings do not conflict.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PavementGuy LCD Digital Readout Problems
Bought two levels to measure pavement slope for work. Worked well the first two months, then the LCD digital readout was displaying partial digits and became unreadable. This happened again to the 2nd level. Then I got two replacements and both LCD readouts did not work, straight out of the box. Tried multiple sets of batteries, left it on, turned it off and on, tried different days and still the same result. 4 bad levels in a row. When called the manufacture, they had no explanation, just said to return to Home Depot. Now getting a little nervous about whether I want to continue to get replacements for this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BilltheEngineer Best level I own
This is by far the most feature rich nicest level I have owned or used. Most of the time this is not the level I reach for, only because it seems to nice to use on some jobs. Most jobs requiring the use of a level don't require the level of precision that this gives you. Something's I think the accuracy makes you shoot for perfect when close will do. That aside its a nice level and there are some times when knowing the angle or making two surfaces the same angle are important and its not easy to do with a regular bubble level. The case is nice too, it will keep it looking like new.
